Amazon, Whole Foods Introduce 2-Hour Grocery Delivery

Amazon and Whole Foods Market have teamed up to provide free two-hour delivery of groceries from Whole Foods Market to Amazon Prime members in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Virginia Beach. The companies intend to expand the service throughout the United States in 2018.

Prime members can browse thousands of items in the produce, bakery, dairy, meat and seafood, and everyday essentials categories from Whole Foods Market on or the Prime Now app. Members will receive free two-hour delivery, while delivery within one hour is available for $7.99 on orders totaling $35 or more.

The integration of digital with brick and mortar began in August when Amazon completed its acquisition of Whole Foods Market for $13.7 billion. On the same day, Whole Foods Market reduced prices on some of its top-selling grocery staples. Since then, Amazon lockers have been installed in Whole Foods Market stores, allowing customers to ship products from to a local Whole Foods store for pickup, or return products to Amazon using the lockers.

John Mackey, co-founder and CEO of Whole Foods Market, said, “We are thrilled to offer our customers the convenience of free two-hour delivery through Prime Now and access to thousands of natural and organic groceries and locally sourced favorites. Together, we have already reduced prices on many items, and this service makes life even easier for Prime members.”
